Now, I found a solution myself:

  ViewPoint -> {0, -10000, 0},
  ViewAngle -> 1.3 / 10000,
  ViewVertical -> {0, 0, 1}

behaves as I wanted.
The ViewPoint must be very far and the ViewAngle a little bit bigger
than the angle of the object seen from that far.

I still could not find a way to interactively change the perspective

By the way, I am surprised by the fact that Manipulate does not seem
to work on this:

    ViewPoint -> {0, -10^p, 0},
    ViewAngle -> 1.3/10^p,
    ViewVertical -> {0, 0, 1}
    {p, 0.3, 4, 0.1}

does not change the perspective while p is changed.
Who knows why?
